Bleak, but also heartfelt at the same time.
dit is waar het leven al die tijd om draait.
Beautiful, sensitive, imperfect. Brilliant use of gastronomy to allegorize the adaptation of humans to sensory deprivation. A love story in an a rather plausible apocalyptic frame. At its essence it reminds of It's All About Love by Thomas Vinterberg.
like Lars von Trier's "Melancholia"
I agree with the comments below, well said.
People prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
So far, on of my favorite 'end of the world' stories. Eva Green and Ewan McGregor do a wonderful job here. lovelovelove!
" It's dark now. But they feel each others' breath. And they know all they need to know. They kiss. And they feel each others' tears on their cheeks. And if there had been anybody left to see them, then they would look like normal lovers, caressing each others' faces, bodies close together, eyes closed, oblivious to the world around them. Because that is how life goes on. Like that. "
While sceptical to it at first the seemingly simple sujet on sensory dependence and tied social and psychological realities coupled by Ewan McGregor and Eva Green remains under the skin.
'what's the point of being an epidemiologist if all you do is making love during a contagion' asks the movie.
A unique love story that would have been much better and much more touching if the narration is omitted
Incredible. Actual. Appealing.
Quando caímos da unidade, a única forma de entrarmos em contato com os outros passou a ser os 5 sentidos. É desesperador quando, no filme, eles começam a sumir, um a um. Primeiro, a catarse. Depois, a perda. Há a readaptação, mas e se TODOS os sentidos sumirem? Sem ver, sem ouvir, sem sentir, sem cheirar, sem degustar... Ainda não 'comprei' aquele final, mas, enfim... faz pensar. Nota: B+
Eine Liebeserklärung an die Sinne. Und an den Verlust. Und daran, dass Leben immer irgendwie weiter geht. Klingt kitschig, ist aber nur groß.
Pretty depressing. for some people maybe it's old sweet movie, uneven or whatever. But for me it's great, every frame, every sense, love. You'll notice when something bad happen on life, on your love, you must go on.
A rather flawed but still engaging sci-fi romance. It's more good ideas than good film making. Maybe this would fit really nicelly on the stage, it needed a lot more work to polish it for the screen.
This is the sort of film where I wish half ratings were allowed. More like a 3.5. Some really beautiful moments in Perfect Sense. Check out the Chicago Sun Times review (not by Ebert) for a great review of the film--coincidentally what made me decide I had to see it.
